    This is my first post here (although I've been a member here for some time), so I think a short introduction could be good...

    I'm from Finland and I'm 18 years old. I make scandinavian knives and have done soo for about 4 years, I made my first knife when I was 12 years old. My brother is also a knifemaker, he is 16 yeras old he actully won the Finnish championship in knifemaking for under 18 year old makers 2007...

    Tought I would start to show you some pics of a knife I'm working on at the moment. The knife isn't finished yet but it should be tomorrow...

    This is how the knife will look like:

    I've used mammoth bark, buffalohorn and fossiled valrus ivory in the handle.

    And a beutiful Andre' Andersson damascus blade.

    This is the diffrent pieces in the handle

    I have filed the mammoth bolster so it fits perfectly to the blade. The piece was so big so i sawed it in half, I will make some type of decoration on the end of the handle with the other mammoth piece.

    I glue all other pieces together before making the tang hole.

    Sometimes the gluing aint that easy

    I do glue the bolster first.

    and while the glue is drying I take out for the tang on the other piece

    It fits perfectly!!

    So what do you think??

    More to come...

    Nice job of fitting all those pieces together. I loved the "rube goldberg" clamping to get all the pieces together :D
